 Claire photographed our wedding 4 years ago and we loved the photos, we’ve had 2 mini shoots with our daughter too in the last year which are a very affordable way of getting some great family photos, the Ashridge shoot was great as I hadn’t considered outside photos.

As a family photographer I specialise in Pregnancy, Newborns & Family Portraits. Newborn Photography is such a passion.  I adore these shoots so let me know when your little one is on its way as best time to capture them is within the first two weeks. I work either in my studio & offer at home shoots with a variety of props, blankets and baskets. As well as family photographs (which are often taken outdoors in a rural setting if possible) I do bespoke Lifestyle Business Shoots which covers website head shots to a complete appraisal of your business and self image.
